He was no longer the self-contained trapper, but a man suddenly bereft of that which he holds most dear. He ran noisily from point to point, prying here, there, and everywhere for some sign which could tell him whither she had gone. But there was nothing to help him, nothing that could tell him that which he would know. She had gone, vanished, been spirited away in the storm.

His mother had met them at the door of her poor little house, without any demonstration of grief or terror; she was far too well acquainted in her widowhood bereft of all her children but this son with sickness and death, to show even surprise, if she felt it.
